This is a beautiful statue of a Bull Moose and Cow stepping out of the realistic water. The statue is a 13.25" x 7" x 9" centerpiece for your mantel.
Moose mate in early fall. During mating season, females attract males with their deep calls and strong scent. Bull moose use their antlers in threat displays when they are fighting over females. Sometimes they will get into a pushing fight with their antlers. These fights rarely get too serious because the antlers could catch together and both moose could die.
When mating season is over, the moose's antlers will fall off. Mice and other rodents will gnaw on the antlers because they are a good source of calcium.
Moose calfThe female gives birth during the spring or summer. She usually has one baby. Moose calves can stand up within a day and they can swim within a couple of weeks. Calves are weaned after about six months and will stay with their mother until the next young are born. Mothers are very protective of their calves and will charge people if they get too close. Bull moose may also charge people and even cars during mating season. Moose can run as fast as 35 mph, so it's a good idea to stay out of their way(nhptv.org)!
The water detail on this statue is amazing. A bull moose surfacing from the water after grabbing a snack of aquatic plants. This statue is 12.25" x 5.5" x 8.5".
Experienced hunters climb ridges, and any available trees, to glass hillsides and lowlands with binoculars. Some hunters even try to call moose closer by grunting or thrashing antlers against bushes and trees. Many Alaskans rely on bush planes to find moose, but a pilot and his passengers may not kill a moose on the same day the moose is spotted. A majority of Alaskans use their cars to hunt for this magnificent creature.
All edible meat from the moose must be taken for human use, nothing that can be eaten can be wasted. There are strict laws forbidding the waste of Alaska's game animals' meat. Most people keep the antlers as a reminder of their hunt, and in some cases the antlers must be taken to prove the bull was of legal size and age. There are seasons in some areas that allow the female moose (cows) to be harvested.
You'll need a license, harvest ticket, tags, a guide, or permit depending on the area you're hunting and where you come from. Some people get lucky and see a moose from the road. Other hunters may hunt from the road for decades and never see a bull moose during hunting season. Luck plays a big part in finding a bull moose. Alaskans pay the smallest amount to hunt moose. Residents from other states and countries pay a much higher cost to have the right to hunt the Alaskan moose.
